Say So Long to Cement

The traditional surgical treatment for vertebral compression fractures consists of using synthetic balloons to create cavities in the spine, followed by a liquid acrylic cement that is injected into the spine in order to stabilize the fractured vertebrae.

However, studies show that even in the hands of the most experienced surgeons, the procedure can cause problems down the road. 

1 in 5 VCF procedures result in cement leaking out of the vertebrae, and in some cases flowing into the bloodstream¹

Cement migration can end up in the heart, lungs, and press against the spinal cord, creating health risks, including pulmonary hypertension and heart surgery²

This poses particular concern for osteoporosis patients, who are likely to already suffer from heart and lung issues²

Introducing the OsteoPearl

Simply elegant in our approach, we designed a streamlined and intuitive procedure for maximum workflow efficiency and minimal supply chain burden.  

The OsteoPearl implants, with flexible links between the pearls, consist of 100% cortical bone, designed to create a 3-D Cortical Structural Matrix for immediate stability while introducing both osteoinductive and osteoconductive properties. This stimulates healing and bone growth, for the long-term health of the patient, while avoiding all the complications associated with traditional cement.
